Nantes, a cultural and artistic destination

Looking for a city trip which gives a change of scene? The Venice of the West is a city that surprises by its cultural offer because it gathers several universes like the maritime and the industrial one. For example, the Castle of the Dukes of Brittany, the Nantes Museum of Art, La Compagnie du Café-Théâtre, the Jules Verne Museum, the Machines de l'île art project are cultural attractions that give a medieval, historical and cultural identity to the city. By choosing Nantes, you will embark on a journey of discovery in neighbourhoods that favor encounters between new and confirmed artists and the public, such as Bellevue-Chantenay, Dervallières-Zola and the Ile de Nantes. You will be permanently exposed to this cultural bubbling throughout your trip, it is definitely the place to be to fully appreciate culture.

Party culture in the west of France

The nightlife is very lively and intense, you can for example spend a good evening in a bar or in a theatre. For calm people and those who are looking for cosy evenings, the mythical theatre of Loire-Atlantique Grand T is one of the cultural and unavoidable places, where you can enjoy a rich program by making you travel in the universe of local, national and international artists through their art. For the more (or less) party-animal, you can enjoy cultural cocktails (bar, nightclubs, reading room, art gallery...), as well as the cultural center le Lieu unique and the Hangar à bananes; festive districts such as the Bouffay and Graslin are waiting for you.
